Winter Celebration kicks off tonight in Lebanon

It is Blanchard's sixth year setting up a light display to honor his uncle Jason Timmons, who died tragically with his fiancée when their vehicle was struck on Interstate 89 by a pickup truck whose driver intentionally drove across the median in 2013.
